Weekend Classes 28-29th August

It’s that time of the month again, everyone! It’s the Half Day of Creation. We put on a series of workshops and author showcases and you’re welcome to pop in for as many (or as few) as you like! Don’t think of it as a single event, it a series of mini events and you’re welcome to all or just one or two of them! Sign up here

Timetable (all times BST)

5pm – Frank Rudiger Lopes – Creating Life in Sci-fi: Writing Planets, Extraterrestrials and AI – Writing workshop

6pm – Liz Kurtzmann – Writing for the Spooky Stage

8pm – Brittany Rae Grosz – Within the Woods. And Without – Writing Workshop

9.15 pm – Author showcase with Adam Wing, Jon Walker, April-Jane Rowan and G V Pearce

On Sunday, we’re joined by Linds to talk the Geological Gothic!

Sign up here

Gothic literature loves a good dramatic mountain, cliff or crag, so what is it that makes the rocky stuff irresistible to writers? We love the atmospheric creepiness of an isolated chasm, or a sheer wall of rock swept by rain or snow, but we don’t ever think much about what makes mountains gothic, beyond the weather or the presence of something with sharp teeth. This talk will focus on mountains as an example of how geology is inherently gothic, using 2 popular texts and a podcast to give examples of the ways in which geological time is the perfect frame for things which are deep, dark and unknowable

This started off as a story blog to share the little fictions that I like to write but it's turned into something a bit more Goth! I'm Dr Sam Hirst and I research the Gothic, theology and romance and at the moment I'm doing free Gothic classes online! We also have readalongs, watchalongs and reading groups. And I post fun little Gothic bits when I have the chance. Find me on twitter @RomGothSam
